We maintain our schedule and consider the band or company booking to be responsible for transitions and modifying set times as needed to stay within the scheduled time.

On street parking is available, as well as a St. Paul public parking lot across the street. The parking lot behind Caydence is NOT owned by Caydence. Please do not park in this lot.

MERCH

Feel free to bring and sell your own merch, set up is on front window bar in coffee shop.
Caydence does also retail local music media on consignment.  Simply inquire with staff.

COVERS/PAYMENT

All shows require a cover, Caydence sets a minimum of $6 and we average $8-$12 covers for shows.  Please set the door price accordingly. All financials related to shows will be discussed through emails. Caydence operates on a break even at door and then split 70/30 to booking party/Caydence.

(Artists looking for guarantees must discuss with booking agent)

Caydence does not guarantee a payout. You are responsible for your turn out and therefore how much you can make off your event!

GUEST LIST/AMENITIES

Sorry, there is no +1 or guest list, unless previously discussed with owners. (this includes significant others, parents, photographers, merch people).

PROMOTION

All artists are responsible for getting band information (pictures soundcloud/spotify links, etc) to booking agent in a timely manner so a facebook & website event can be built, at least 3 weeks prior to scheduled event date or Caydence will potentially cancel the show.

Artists are expected to promote their show through social media, flyering or any other means.

We want to help your shows be as successful as possible. Caydence tries to promote every show via social media, website calendar, and in store events calendars. Bands that fail to produce a flier or any graphical advertising for their show will not be able to be promoted!  If shows are not promoted well and turnout is low, you may not be asked to perform again. Your turn out is up to you. We have seen 3 covers shows, we have seen at capacity shows.

NO DRUGS NO ALCOHOL NO EXCEPTIONS
All shows are all ages. 

Thank you for your understanding and hard work! We are musicians as well and understand booking and organizing are hard work. Thank you for your hard work!
